Your knee surgery options

Whether your knee pain is due to osteoarthritis, injury or wear and tear, we offer multiple options for repair:

  • Oxford® partial knee replacement
    This advanced partial-knee surgery preserves the healthy part of the joint, enabling the knee to bend better and retain a more natural function. Results include less pain, shorter hospital stay and a quicker return to normal activities.

  • Total knee replacement
    Also called arthroplasty, this surgery replaces the bones affected by osteoarthritis. Metal and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint and the kneecap. You may want to consider this surgery if you have severe osteoarthritis or a serious knee injury. Following surgery, you should be able to resume most normal activities within three to six weeks.

  • Mako robot-arm assisted total or partial knee replacement surgery
    Available for partial and total knee and hip replacement surgeries, this technology uses 3-D modeling to help your doctor create a personalized surgical plan and allows for precise placement of the implant while preserving healthy bone, tissue and ligaments. Mako is offered at Sharp Coronado Hospital and Sharp Grossmont Hospital.

Your surgeon will discuss your specific circumstances and help you decide which treatment is best for you.

We believe you should get back to enjoying life quickly, and we're with you every step of the way. When you choose Sharp, you're choosing expert, personalized care to get you the best possible results.
